translated from Spanish: ‘ Chapo ‘ mother Guzman gets humanitarian visa

Joaquin’s mother “Chapo” Guzmán said this Saturday that he obtained a humanitarian visa to visit his son in the United States, who is in jail waiting for a sentence to export tons of drugs to that country.
“I thank President Andrés Manuel López Obrador and the U.S. embassy because they gave me permission,” Maria Consuelo Loera Perez told reporters outside the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City.

The woman said that when she talked to “El Chapo”, she says, “She’s okay, everything’s fine.”
“I hope you will allow me to give you a hug,” he said. “I wish you had your freedom.”
The mother of the chief of the Sinaloa cartel was accompanied by the two sisters of Capo, Armida and Bernarda, who also requested the document.
Last February, Loera Perez asked the Mexican president, in a letter saying “afflicted and desperate,” to support her in obtaining humanitarian visas that would allow her to visit her son.
“I have not seen him for more than five years and (with) my advanced age and not being able to see him, only my faith in Christ Jesus keeps me alive,” he wrote in the letter that López Obrador himself reported.
In that letter he also asked that Guzmán be repatriated to Mexico.

Following a three-month media trial at the Brooklyn courthouse, the chief of the Sinaloa cartel was convicted on 12 February of exporting tons of cocaine, heroin, methamphetamine and marijuana to the United States.
It must be sentenced on June 25th and faces a possible life sentence.
His lawyers announced that they will appeal the verdict after the sentence and also call for a new trial, alleging that some jurors followed the coverage of the first process in the media and thus violated the judge’s orders.
